Welcome to my new Blog



Welcome to my Blog.
My Blog is mostly about my hobbies, ie Model boats,Cross Stitch, Gardening, Days out and about and Photography with pictures taken at and around our Model Boat club at Etherow Country Park, where I can be found quite a few days a week on the landing stage, you might recognize the hat and the dog rather than me. My models and other hobbies can be found in the tabs at the top above the header picture.
There will also be entries of days out with my long haired Chihuahua "Pepe", weather permitting of course.

Front head light

Then it was on to the head light, which I wanted to look a bit more modern and be seen on the water !


First the materials, two tubes that fitted inside each other


Three pieces of the larger of the two were stuck together and top cover added


Resistors were then soldered on,as you can see there is a collar on the led



Plastic collars fitted with the smaller tube , this stops the led moving about inside the larger tube.



It works 


And its all down to instructions from son John trained electrical engineering draughtsman, that learning was not wasted then!


Three soldered together, resistors on positive leads covered with shrink wrap



Gives you an idea of the size of the unit, and all made a lot easier with the soldering talk and demo from the club meeting the other week by Geoff !!



 The finished unit, finished for the electrics that is , needs cleaning up and painting and wired up under the roof

Looks a bit like the robots head in the movie  "Short circuit" doesn't it

 .

And it all works as you can see with the battery box attached and a good light given out!.
